Senator McCOLL (Victoria) .- Since the sitting was suspended I have made inquiries as to what this clause really means, and I find that it is intended to apply to ships coming to Australia with uncertificated officers. The concession proposed by the late Government in 1908 was that they would not interfere with uncertificated officers on board these vessels, but that they would compel them to accept certificated officers if they engaged them here. In the circumstances, would it not be well to make the position perfectly clear?
